International sports events are often also new technology show and examination room.
With the rapid development of various communication technologies and services, each Olympic Games has been branded with a unique technological label. In 1964, the Tokyo Olympic Games used satellite for the first time to realize the live broadcast of the Olympic Games. Atlanta Olympic Games used computer network for information service for the first time, 2000 Sydney Olympic Games became the first Internet Olympic Games, 2004 Athens Olympic Games 3G blooming, 2008 Beijing Olympic Games realized high-definition broadcast. Social media became popular at the 2012 London Olympics, with 4G in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, fully available in 2016.
In early 2018, Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, people saw the first 5 G figure. (KT), an official partner of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, is mainly a virtual application for its 5G commercial trial at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, with five businesses attracting the most attention: "synchronized viewing" for sleigh projects. Through the ultra miniature wireless camera and the telecommunication module, can provide the player 3D angle of view real-time picture for the audience; "time slice", is based on 5G video stream technology, the viewer can control time, viewing target, angle and so on; 360-degree VR (virtual reality), used in ice hockey and skiing events, viewers can wear equipment to watch the game in VR mode; Panoramic View, used in cross-country skiing, allows viewers to track specific athletes in real time. 5G buses, autonomous vehicles.
But the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang are not the "5G" Olympics in the standard sense, because at that time the 3GPP standard was not yet available.
The 2020 Tokyo Olympics was the first commercial appearance since 5G. In the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, 4K will be the main medium. NHK will synchronize the pilot 8K. At that time, Japanese operator NTT will provide 5G services including high-definition video, 30km per hour, a G 4K video transmission; Important 5G applications for the Tokyo Olympics also include motion detection, which detects athletes' fatigue by setting sensors on their bodies. Robotic cars will also provide services during the Tokyo Olympics.
But the Olympics, which took place on a 5G commercial point of time, is more like a site-in pose. for a model at the start of a show. Real mature applications, we are looking forward to commercial two years after the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.
Wu Hequan, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, imagined that at that time, 5G of large capacity and high bandwidth would present us with 8K ultra high definition video; The combination of 5G cloud architecture and moving edge computing allows the camera to shoot high-speed video not necessarily in the remote cloud, but in base stations with caching and edge computing capabilities. Support real-time presentation and allow viewers to look back at exciting moments anytime and anywhere; Car networking applications will also be more mature, when the car networking is not only the connection of cars and roads, but also the calculation of cars and edges, and the real-time interaction between cars and pedestrians will be realized through 5G network. The Beijing Winter Olympics will also use a lot of Internet of things technology. Athletes will be equipped with sensors and high-definition camera heads. Spectators can feel the situation of the athletes before and after the athletes, and they can track any player. It is also possible to measure the speed of each athlete and to perceive the fatigue of the athlete.
